Penthos: The Lenten Journey To Joy

For my Eastern Orthodox readers:

Pemptousia, a journal about Culture, Science, and Religion, managed by the Friends of Vatopaidi Monastery, just published one of my articles:

Penthos: The Lenten Journey To Joy

It’s nothing scholarly, just a little reflection on Lent.

The article was originally written during Lent 2009, for St. Luke Orthodox Church Newsletter, OCA, Palos Hills, IL.

Just a detail: the images were not mine, and I’m really not sure why they did not use the gorgeous icon of the Prodigal Son, instead of this not even good Renaissance painting.
